More about our Laser Therapy

Knee Treatment

Pain management through laser therapy is especially helpful to those patients who cannot tolerate injections or their prescribed drugs. We believe that managing a patient’s pain requires implementing multiple strategies and new, cutting-edge solutions to achieve maximum benefits. We also see that patients are searching for alternative therapies to manage pain and reduce dependence on medication.

“Based on my experience here in our clinic, the laser has been very effective in healing many different types of conditions. We treat a variety of patients ranging from those suffering from chronic back pain to marathon runners who have inflamed knee and hip joints” said Razmig Haladjian, MD, Michigan Interventional Pain Center owner. “It is also a useful adjunct to the traditional modalities of pain relief.”

Scientifically, there are a few important things that happen during laser treatment. First, infrared laser therapy treatment helps reduce pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue healing—both in hard and soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, or even bones. Additionally, the treatment stimulates the cytochrome oxidase enzyme in the cells’ mitochondria.

This is really one of the key discoveries in the whole science of laser therapy: The targeting of injured cells. This is due to the fact that damaged cells are more readily accepting of photons of light, whereas healthy cells don’t need this extra energy.
